Great House with Private Location

Sent on 2023-11-19 by Nicky
Overall
5
Westover lodge was incredibly comfortable. We loved the private location and beautiful views. Overall the property was very clean, though there were some dead bugs that should have been swept up before our arrival and a couple of lizards we had to evict (but you are in the woods, so a little wildlife is to be expected). we loved the large well stocked kitchen and the super comfy bed in the main level primary suite. Driving through the development was an adventure but well worth it. The waterfall and walking trail area was a fantastic bonus. Would stay again for sure!

Manager's Response

We're delighted that you had an overall fantastic stay and enjoyed the comfortable accommodations, private location, and gorgeous views. We apologize for the minor cleaning issues you encountered, and we appreciate you sharing your valuable feedback with us so our team can grow and provide you with an even better experience in the future.

The very best mountain rental yet!

Westover Lodge surpassed any expectations we have ever had for a mountain vacation. The house was just fabulous, immaculately clean, roomy, and well appointed. The chefs kitchen was a dream to cook in, and our two dogs thoroughly enjoyed the flat, level back yard. The location was very private and quiet, and we enjoyed the peacefulness of the entire Gateway Mountain community.

Manager's Response

Thank you for this feedback and the 5-star review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your time at Westover Lodge!

Stunning view from a stunning cabin

We enjoyed our recent stay at Westover Lodge. The cabin itself is beautiful and the view from the back deck was perfect. There are a few updates needed, but it was equipped with everything we needed to prepare our meals and provided luxurious comfort while spending time together. Furnishings were very nice and a private bathroom for each bedroom was a bonus. The drive from town is a lot, but very woorth it!

Manager's Response

FAQs

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Westover Lodge is located within the private Gateway Mountain Community in Old Fort. This home is approximately a 20-minute drive to downtown Old Fort, a 30-minute drive to Black Mountain, a 35-minute drive to Marion, and a 45-minute drive to Asheville. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus an $89 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Westover Lodge is not “pet friendly.” Please be respectful of those owners who, because of allergies or other personal reasons, have chosen not to allow any pets. If housekeeping notes that a pet was present on a non-pet friendly property during your visit, you will be charged a minimum of $600 to clean carpets, upholstered furniture and complete air purification measures. Bringing a pet to a house that is not pet-friendly without owner consent or permission from Greybeard is grounds for termination of the rental agreement without refund. If you must travel with your pet, please contact us for local boarding recommendations. More info about service animals and the ADA is available here.

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

Westover Lodge is located in a gated community. You must go to our Old Fort Office at 243 Catawba Ave S to pick up your gate card. Driving directions to our Old Fort Office, along with access instructions will be sent out via email. Once you have picked up your gate card, you can proceed to the house. Please do not rely on GPS. We will provide you with driving directions to the home from our Old Fort Office. You will receive check-in instructions prior to your arrival with key access information.

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and select option 1, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

WHEN IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WHEN ARE HOMES WITH GAS LOGS IN OPERATION?

Westover Lodge has an indoor gas logs fireplace. Gas logs are not in operation May through September due to the warmer summer months. 

Since this home does NOT provide an outdoor fire pit, absolutely NO fires are permitted outside, and you cannot bring your own portable fire pit.

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION? WILL I HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AT MY RENTAL?

Wifi is available at Westover Lodge. Please note that Greybeard Rentals does not guarantee internet connectivity or speed. Each individual homeowner contracts directly with an internet service provider, and due to a variety of reasons, Greybeard does not guarantee service. Our Black Mountain and Asheville offices have wifi service available if needed.

Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if service is available.
